    Honour to Senator Murray Sinclair

    ★★★★

    A short documentary built around a speech given by Senator Murray Sinclair on receiving recognition for his work with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The documentary gives a powerful and concise history of the Commission and the important role that it played in raising awareness of the Residential School system and genocidal practices in Canada.

    A fun silent comedy where a woman from the US has to impersonate her cousin, a prince who is going to become a king. Lots of funny moments and Marion Davies is fantastic as the woman who has to pretend to be the prince as things get increasingly complicated as she falls in love with her bodyguard.

    Really great to go into the film knowing as little as possible. Starting out funny and warm as a quirky comedy but then slowly changing into something much darker. It's filled with great comedic moments and some elaborate set pieces with all of the parts working together in a great way by the time it all emerges as a complex and unpredictable look at family, class, and work.

    A masterpiece from Varda filled with virtuoso shots, a great sense of humour, and a willingness to mix styles and genres to tell a simple story that works on so many levels.
